Alright I have my new Correctlync steering installed as well as a new Currie adj front trackbar. I think I have it pretty close to setup, but still need to do all the final adjustments and alignment tomorrow.
However I have a couple of concerns and would like some input from those of you who either run or have installed this setup. Bear in mind the final adjustments of brackets etc is not finished yet. (Excepts the stabilizer, I got it tightened down.)
My setup is an '03 Rubicon TJ, 4" OME lift, rancho adjustable shocks.
Here is the overall pic of how it looks right now:
Looking at how I have it the stabilizer compared to some others i found on google images I'm now thinking the front stabilizer mount is pointing the stabilizer too far up on the driver side. Others seem to be running it directly in line with the drag link. Mine is cocked a little bit, but seemed to sit well there.
I installed all this on a lift at my work, so some of my concerns may not be a big as issues as I think, but I am not sure.
Next up is the pass side sway bar link (quick disconnect). When the jeep is on the ground and the steering wheel completely turned to the passenger side full lock the top of the tie rod end where the tie rod connects to the drag link, it barely, just BARELY contacts the bottom of my sway bar link/mount:
Now when the jeep is in the air on the lift and the suspension is completely hanging, that tie rod end smacks right into the sway bar link. This might not ever be a problem based on how low the susp is hanging when on the lift compared to wheeling it, but I'm not sure.
Next up, still on the ground, this time on the drivers side with the steering wheel turned full lock to the drivers side, the tie rod doesn't touch, but comes within about 1/4" from touching the sway bar link mount :
Everything clears the diff cover by a good inch, so no issues there that I can tell.
I am curious about the tie rod end clamps. On the bar there are machined notches on the ends as recesses for the clamp bolts. These clamps can not go any other way but to have the curve on top and the open ends down on my setup otherwise they hit things. (The stabilizer for sure on the pass side already did that) My concern here is if those recesses end up on top for the alignment, then what do I do? Go ahead the half turn passed so the clamps will align properly to clear??
And finally a couple more pics of the setup. This is with a stock pitman arm as well.
Any insight or opinions would be welcome! Tomorrow is the final adjustments and the alignment!!
Thanks in advance!
